SSL Client Authentication : requested vs required

34 Views

Hello,

I am retrieving the SSL Client Authentication type through JMX, using the <b>com.sap.engine.services.ssl.dispatcher.RuntimeInterface</b>. There, I can find the method :

<i>public boolean getNeedClientAuth(String host, int port)</i>

but returning "true" does not tell me if the Client Certificate is "Requested" or "Required". However the dinstinction is visible in the VisualAdmin > Dispatcher > Services > SSL Provider > Client Authentication.

How can I make this distinction using the JMX process ?

Thanks and best regards,

Laurent
